The star of The 40 Year Old Virgin and The Office[br /]
Steve Carell is the "reporter" from TV's The Daily Show who starred in the Judd Apatow comedy film The 40 Year-Old Virgin (2005) and now leads the cast of the American television series The Office. Carell began getting small roles in television and film in the early 1990s. Between 1999 and 2005 he appeared regularly on The Daily Show and in the hit comedy films Bruce Almighty (2003, starring Jim Carrey) and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004, starring Will Ferrell). The Office, based on the U.K. series by Ricky Gervais, began in the spring of 2005, and later that year The 40 Year-Old Virgin (which he co-wrote) was released. The success of both moved Carell from bit parts to leads, and he signed to star in Get Smart, a movie version of the 1960s TV comedy by Mel Brooks. Carell's other film credits include Bewitched (2005, with Nicole Kidman), Little Miss Sunshine (2006, with Alan Arkin) and Dan in Real Life (2007, with Juliette Binoche).
Carell is married to actress Nancy Walls, who appeared in The Office as recurring character Carol Stills.
